Won / blood glucose meter

Won
Won

Diabetes is most common diseases amongst seniors. However it can be controlled by regular blood glucose checks. As both blood glucose meter and pricking device are combined in one device, users bring only ‘Won’ wherever they go. Moreover, the circle shape allows ideal grip from patients with hand tremors. When users place their finger on the plate, heat sensor recognizes body heat and initiates the laser lancet which utilizes a tiny laser beam to draw a blood sample. For hygeine, users have to replace lancet every time. However, the laser doesn’t have to be replaced like ordinary lancets and it causes much less pain.
